we'll fire off more thunderstorms tomorrow morning, tomorrow afternoon, as this thing moves tracks to the northeast. it keeps us this in cooling trend pattern until it moves out of here. it's been a busy week in back to school. you're going too. just to get them out the door. 61degrees at 8:00 a.m. maybe a little cooler. 74degrees around lunchtime. low 80s when the kids come home. 88 in vacaville. 91 in clear lake. tomorrow's forecast highs, thursday, cooler than they were today. certainly, quite a bit cooler than a couple of days ago. along the coast. low 60s, and upper 50s. the five-day forecast, with the bay area weekend in view. take a look. you see temperatures tomorrow then, a little cooler. a little warmer here and a little cooler into saturday, sunday, and monday. there's the five-day forecast with your bay area weekend in view. nice to get the thunderstorms out of the area. they were really giving us fits.
10:51pm
fired off there tonight, if that had been over land, it would be an issue. >> a crazy week. thank you bill. two bay area colleges rank among the top in the world when it comes to best universities. the academic ranking listed harvard university number 1, stanford university came in 2nd, followed by uc berkely. cal tech was the other california school on the list. it ranked 6th. wrestlemania could soon be coming to santa clara. it was a finalist to host the event in the spring of 2015. santa clara's mayor is flying to the east coast with 49er executives to help pitch the new stadium for wrestlemania 2015. philadelphia is the other city competing for the gig. a decision isn't expected until next year. >> that last wrestlemania, 80,000 fans. how about the a's, what is it going on with them? >> we're closing in on the
10:52pm
final month of the season. i think we're going to find out what they're made out of. got to find a way to keep this slump out of a full blown free fall. leaving the a's feeling like they should have won them all. oakland led in all three games rather late. the a's up 3-2 in the 6th. one run in easy. second one, another story. shaken up here. the a's can ill afford to lose another catcher. apparently, he's okay, but the mariners take a 4-3 lead. the a's had a great chance in the 7th. two on, one out. jed lowrie smoked it. eric sogard caught in a pickle. he is out. no runs. result, texas won their ballgame, and a's lose theirs. it's a 2.5 game deficit now in
10:53pm
the west. no getting around it. the giants defense of their world championship has kind of sunk into pure embarrassment. 12-1 thumping. boston outscores the giants 21- 4 in a three game series. the petaluma kid, johnny gomez with the single. here's a perfect example of how the giants can't get it together. shane victorino popped. three guys, any of them could have caught it, they don't. the red sox are even bored. 12-1. yankee stadium, you think of ruth, gehrig, reggie, other home run hitters. but the bronx, the site of quite a landmark, from perhaps the best singles hitter of all- time. sports part two, next.

talking strictly baseball of course. anytime your name is mentioned in the same sentence with ty cobb and pete rose, a good thing. 4,000th career hit for ichiro, joining rose and cobb as the only professional to do so.
10:57pm
remember, he played seven years in japan. and 1,278 of those hits were collected over there. quite a feat nonetheless. game stopped, a lengthy standing ovation, and congratulations from his yankee teammates. perhaps leaving the sting of his own words when he called the media clueless for questioning the abilities of aj jenkins, 49er coach harbaugh this time unprovoked, chastised the media today. >> i don't think it's fair to bully, or label a young player. though, i fully understand that people are entitled to their opinion, and their perspective. however i would appreciate that the criticism was directed toward me. i'm responsible, and i certainly accept that. actually, welcome it. >> make no mistake, they traded him because the niners saw the same thing the media did.
10:58pm
they don't trade people because of what the media says. thank you for choosing ktvu, channel 2 news. we'll see you the next time news brakes. >> ktvu morning news starts at 4:30. >> good night.
